I concur totally with the previous comments!! Not more to say, but I will try. Hockey rinks were always funny places to see the boys. Gotta' love general madness shows too. What better crowds than Rochester people!! Cool locals!!! Never forget Genesee beer, ooh baby. Still one of nicest cities in the east. Wegmans, Kodak etc. Go see any show in Rochester and you will not be bummed out. My favorites that night were Loser, Birdsong, Satisfaction. Just can't get no...

hot first set... oh, and a hot second set
they get off to a solid start with Alabama>GSET.... but what about that BIRD SONG sitting there so innocently in the middle of the set? jerry and bob get a very nice mix going as they head off into the jam.... it is something the dead lost completely in subsequent years.... they are playing in this big hall with a huge soundsystem and the guitarists employ only the most minimal amount of signal processing. both of them are essentially just playing their guitars CLEAN. this is the sound i like most in a BIrd Song, either acoustic or like this -- not with a bunch of MIDI processing -- this degree of clarity allows for the conversation to develop without any yelling or obfuscation -- the climax comes at 6:00 as all sides have been heard from, no ruffled feathers -- they just flit from branch to branch..... alight on their special metaphor. they are really warmed up now and the rest of set plays out beautifully. they are really telling us a story with each move, all their choices forming perfect counterpoint and compliment...
a triumphant Loser, a hot strutting Minglewood (brent) and a bring down the house China>Rider, jerry flashing those looooonnnng lead lines that seem like they want to go on forever.... whoa, we twirl off into the intermission.
women are smarter seems like the perfect continuation of the first set -- but with TO LAY ME DOWN, Jerry introduces that next, deeper level. and we get a very tasty, languorous version -- Brent really makes the tune, offering superb harmony backing. one of only three versions played in 1982, this proves to be the highlight of the show. jerry makes a play at the other one coming out of space.... they continue in a nice suggestive other one mode, teasing the song along, from the last two minutes of space through the first two minutes of THE OTHER ONE, as the tracks are broken up here. they quiet to a hush at around 1:30, after which bobby takes over and guides the music until PHIL comes in with the big intro at 2:00.... still, the jam never coalesces -- the verses are sung and they quickly move into stella blue, as if the past ten minutes did not occur.... AND THEN, another nice moment to go along with the To Lay Me Down, JERRY tucks the ball under his arm and makes a mad dash for the finish line with an ALWAYS WELCOME, Goin Down the Road Feelin' Bad -- the only one of the tour. one of 8 played in 1982, out of 62 shows.

Not now Chief...Jerry and the boys are in the zone!
Just a fantastic, well played and high energy show. No flubs, great vocals and balls out playin' by the whole band.
